Perez Hilton welcomes first child, a baby boy
Gossip blogger Perez Hilton is a dad!
The 34-year-old, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, posted a photo of himself holding his newborn baby on his website on Wednesday, February 27.
"I am ready to announce that earlier this month I was blessed with the birth of my first child, a beautiful and healthy baby boy - with lots of hair on his tiny head!" he said. "My family is overjoyed at this newest and most cherished addition."
This is the first child for the blogger and television personality, who is known for his somewhat snarky posts and photos of celebrities with often-offensive commentary scribbled on them in white. He did not reveal his son's name or details about the baby's mother.
"I am so humbled to welcome this little man into my life," Hilton added. "And I am honored and ready for the challenge of guiding him through his."
Perez Hilton on "Law & Order: SVU"
The news comes hours before NBC airs an episode of "Law & Order: SVU" that features Hilton. He is one of several celebrity guests on the crime show -- he joins Wendy Williams, actor Jeffrey Tambor and guitarist Dave Navarro.
"Congrats @PerezHilton on becoming a dad. #HowYouDoin?" Williams Tweeted.
The episode centers around a "promising singer" who is "brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star," which many media outlets have compared to R&B singer Chris Brown's 2009 assault on girlfriend Rihanna.
Hilton, who once hosted his own series called "What Perez Sez," has in the past guest starred on several television shows, including "Glee," "90210" and "The Hills."
